After performing his platinum single “Trap Queen” on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and dropping his highly anticipated “My Way” single with OVO frontman Drake, New Jersey native Fetty Wap chatted with The FADER on Monday about how the collaboration with Drizzy came to fruition. In a succession of events that seems all too convenient, Fetty details how Drake hit him up in a DM, FaceTimed from D.C. and, that night, an email with Drizzy’s cut was there. Check out a portion of The FADER interview below, and watch Fetty Wap’s performance on The Tonight Show here.
“He sent me a DM, and I sent him my number. When I landed from Tampa a couple of days ago, and as soon as I landed and turned my phone off of airplane mode, he was FaceTiming from DC where he was playing ‘My Way’ at a club. He was like, ‘Yo, I want to cut the record tonight.’ Next thing I know, I checked my email and it was there…The thing I respect about Drake the most is that he’s not one of them artists that take his status and just do what he want with it. He has the status to just do anybody’s track, if he really wants to. I’m just a nobody compared to Drake, and he still actually asked me, ‘Is it cool if I do a remix?’ And even the way he said it—more like, ‘Can I bless it?’ He was thanking me for putting him on the remix, and I’m trying to tell him like, ‘No, thank you. You don’t understand what you’re doing for me.’ He’s definitely a very, very, very, very humble person.”
